LoJack SafetyNet, Inc. Participates in Autism Awareness Events in Greater Boston, Philadelphia and Miami Areas

Celebrates National Autism Awareness Month; Waives $99 Enrollment Fee for Month of April 2011

Westwood, MA - March 31, 2011 - Autism is considered the fastest growing developmental disability, as it now affects one in every 110 children*.  One of the many challenges in caring for a child with autism is the risk that they may wander or run off anywhere at any time. Tragically, children with autism often wander off to water sources such as pools, ponds, and lakes and, as such, drowning is a leading cause of death for children with this condition. 

As part of its education initiative and in recognition that April is National Autism Awareness Month, LoJack SafetyNet, Inc.** is participating in several autism awareness events in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, the Greater Philadelphia area and the Greater Miami area.  LoJack SafetyNet offers a service that helps caregivers provide an added layer of protection for children with autism who are prone to wandering.  In the event that a child with autism – who is enrolled in the SafetyNet service – wanders and goes missing, trained and certified public safety agencies can use SafetyNet technology to more effectively find and rescue that individual.  At these events, SafetyNet personnel will demonstrate how the service works.
